San Jose Warnings and Dangers: 5 reviews and 5 photos

San Jose is unbelievably safe for a big city. it has plenty of problems, just it doesn;t spill out onto the street that often.
Downtown is a pretty safe place at night. I mean, don't be stupid and be a solo woman walking the streets at 3 am.
But not a ton of drug dealers in the open, nor street walkers. Usually you'll mostly see homeless. Not out of hand, but plenty here for the warm climate.
With the college smack down in the center there seems to be a lot of people about.
See national city rankings- San Jose just ain't that bad of a place.
